- The contoured SAMOLED display which gives the screen a deep contrast and a slight magnified effect. I have made my screen bg color as black and the effect is superb. You cant really make out the edge of the screen and the bezel. I love it.
PS: The version which is coming to India is a Super LCD version. Not sure how that will look like.
- Gingerbread is fast. Its definitely faster than any android phone I have used.
- Touch sensitiveness is superb. I think its better than iPhone, especially the feel on the finger. Its smoother than the hard glass feel of iPhone 4.
- The overall feel of the hardware is better than iPhone 4. I like the plastic feel as it give more grip than Nexus One. Also the black plastic color goes very well with the deep black screen i talked about previously.
- Battery is better. Lasts for a day with heavy internet usage. I think its a Gingerbread feature. PS: I also know that Gingerbread is giving battery problems on Nexus One.
- Its very light in weight
- The irritating random restart problem during a call. I still haven't got the 2.3.3 patch which will apparently fix this issue
- Its very bad at picking wifi signals. At home when my laptop shows full strength, Nexus S shows just 1 bar and keeps dropping.
- Sometimes it just doesn't show internet connectivity. I have to restart the phone to get it working. But then its twice or thrice in a month. But irritating indeed.
- For some reason the memory space allocated for installing apps is very limited. I have only 156mb of internal memory used but I'm almost at the max level. Last time Angry Birds had an update, I had to uninstall some of the apps to get it installed properly. #Fail
- Other small software issues which I hope will get fixed by software updates. eg Camera's flash doesnt get switched on, No unicode support on browser etc.
Will I recommend buying this phone? Well as of now... I dont know. If they fix the bads, then definitely YES.
